Michelman has hired two new associates to lead its environmental, health and safety (EH&S), and regulatory compliance and product stewardship activities.

This has seen Jon Hunter named global director, EH&S, and who is responsible for the company’s global EH&S strategic leadership, oversight and team development. Mr Hunter has recently been at Harsco Corporation as North American EH&S director and global environmental director. He has over 20 years of experience leading and managing EH&S at Harsco, Eaton Corporation, Honeywell, and Delphi.

Sonia Razzaque has also joined, as vice president, regulatory compliance and product stewardship. She will lead the company’s global regulatory team to assure integration between product regulatory compliance, product stewardship, product management and supply chains. She joins Michelman from Celanese, where she was senior director, global product stewardship. Ms Razzaque has spent most of her 20-plus year career in regulatory compliance and product stewardship, including leadership roles at Nexeo Solutions, Huntsman Corporation, Americas Styrenics and The Dow Chemical Company. 

Michelman remains committed to its triple bottom line approach of ‘People, Planet & Profit’, and the safety and well-being of its global associates is a top priority. Additionally, Michelman is focused on being at the forefront of planet-positive change by advocating for and anticipating the impact of regulatory policy changes on its stakeholders.

Jason Wise, chief financial and risk officer at Michelman, commented, ‘Our industry’s acceleration in safety, environmental, and product regulations continues to create a level of uncertainty throughout the entire value chain. Jon and Sonia will lead our global teams to anticipate these changes and understand their impact on our associates, customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders. We’re privileged and excited to welcome them to the Michelman team.’
